I’ve been zooming in on old photos again to see what I’d previously missed.
Like these two wee boys walking past a house in Barnhill during the 1920’s, or immediately in front of them, on the top of the wall at the Pech Brae, seeing SO much graffiti, which surprised me.
Initials and dates painted on in black on to the whitewashed wall (once the back part of a building), this wall is still there today at the top of the brae. I could just about pick out dates in the 1920s, but it still surprised me to see vandalism on buildings in that era.
“GT, clearly a repeat offender!”
